MEMORIES, is my personal commemorative description of an exceptional legacy of young Black teens in Hattiesburg, Mississippi. This portrait portrays students sharing special bonds of love, friendships, academic dignity and great respect for their Alma Mater, Royal Street-L. J. Rowan High, during and after the outcries of the Civil Rights Era.
If you enjoy searching for time capsules and flashbacks of the United States' History, this profound Legacy can accommodate your thirst and help you understand Black students' desires for getting an education and succeeding beyond their parents and grandparents socioeconomic status or wildest dreams, during the crisis of the Little Rock Nine, the Norfolk's seventeen, the Vietnam Anti-War Movement, the assassinations of President John Kennedy, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Vernon Dahmer, as well as the wrongfully accused and cruel treatments of Clyde Kennard.
Trapped in this almost hopeless environment, many African American students escaped the horrors of society, and blossomed into well-adjusted educated citizens, prepared to enforce and enjoy all freedoms of the United States Constitution and the competitive, global job market."
